8 days a week!

By Uncategorized

So… I’m doing 8 gigs a week. Sounds like a Beatles song!

Steps is brilliant, as always. Lovely people, a little bit mad (but in a good way). I use my big PA system here, and the sound is like putting on a warm coat in the winter!! The staff are excellent, and the beers are cold!!

Jack’s on Wednesday afternoon is a nice gig. It’s early (4pm), and has a very chilled out vibe going on. I think I’m catching people as they’ve just headed out!

The Padel Club reminds me so much of playing in Cullin’s Yard, Dover years ago. I love Sunday afternoon gigs. I can wear my sunglasses!!

See you at a gig soon…

The summer begins…

By Uncategorized

We’re only in April, and the gigs are in full swing. After a long winter, it’s great to get back to it.

Steps is great and busy as always.

Jack’s on Wednesdays, I play before a band in the afternoon. It’s a really nice chilled out vibe.

The Padel Club has turned into a brilliant Sunday afternoon gig. As soon as I finish, it’s straight round to Steps for the evening.

I hope to see you at a gig soon. Here’s to a great summer.


Twenty Four!

It’s been a strange start to the new year for me.

My Dad passed away in December. We were very close.

A very good friend of mine told me that our parents want us to be happy, and to get out and get on with life. As sad as I am, she’s right.

I’ll be in Steps Bar from March.

In the meantime I’ll be in Albufeira Padel Club on Sunday afternoons, and I’ll be doing the odd restaurant gig where my mate, Chef Andy takes over the kitchen.

Happy New Year, everyone. I hope to see you at a gig soon.

The Winter.

By Uncategorized

After a great season in Albufeira, the winter is finally upon us. Steps is closed until Xmas, and as much as I love working, it’s nice to wind down for a little while.

The Padel Club is still happening on Sundays, with one or two other things possibly in the pipeline. Watch this space…

Otherwise, see you next month in Steps.

This year in Steps has been, and still is fantastic. Even as the summer begins to wind down, the gigs are great.

Albufeira Padel Club has become a lovely afternoon gig, that may turn into 2 days a week as we approach the winter.

The sun is still shining, and the beers are still cold!!

My night off…

From this week (14th June), Brian Cristopher will be playing in Steps on Wednesday’s from 10.

Brian & I go back a long way. He’s my cousin!! Great musician.

Old bastard!!

I’m 44 years old.

Which means I’ve been doing gigs for 30 years.

Almost everyone I know, I know because of music.

I am immensely grateful.

Here’s to the next 30 years of gigs!

Nuno’s birthday.

By Uncategorized

A staple in the Albufeira diary.

Nuno is a wonderful guy who does so much good work in the community. One of my best friends.

I’ll be jammin’ with a couple of mates, from 3 at the cafe. We hope to raise some money for the local fire brigade and also Martim. A lovely little boy who has trouble with his movement because of complications at his birth.

We hope you can join us!

There will be a hog roast. MUSIC! And beers!
